London, Apr 29: The Royal Family shot Twitter, the bird which sends news around the globe. While the whole world awaits the Royal Wedding, major news that broke the hearts of Twitter followers came out on early Friday morning! The microblogging site has been banned at the Royal Wedding venue.

Guests and other media persons who attend the wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton can't tweet from their smartphones or computers. Security officials installed signal-blocking technology at Westminster Abbey that blocks the Twitter.

Media reported that the move was suggested by members of the royal family and approved by security. Moreover, the technology, which will be turned on Friday morning till the end of the marriage, will also block mobile phone calls.

Earlier, ABC was forced to scrap The Chaser team's satirical coverage of the wedding after the BBC denied access to footage for anything other than a serious telecast of the event.

Anyhow, along with various TV channels, websites like YouTube, CNN.com and BBC will live stream the Royal Wedding. Users can watch the Royal Wedding live through The Royal Channel YouTube account.
